NYX Orange Eyeshadow

NYX Orange Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is tangerine orange with a lighter peach-orange shimmer. The finish is more of a frosted, but it doesn’t read heavy. It’s a very wearable orange because of the softness in the color. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find a dupe among all of these orange eyeshadows. Givenchy Candide Garden was the closest but still darker. Most shades that were in similar in lightness had a pink-tone or really gold sheen (think MAC Melon).

The color is true-to-pan and opaque on the skin, while the texture is dense, buttery, and very soft without being powdery or loose (which is probably the most common issue of NYX’s eyeshadow line–but many shades are just fine, such as this one).  Without a base, this shade wore for seven hours, but with a base, I had no wear problems after eight hours.  This is definitely one of the better NYX eyeshadows I’ve tried, and personally, I’m always in awe when I can’t think of dupes for a shade!
